A modern take on It’s a Wonderful Life, the spellbinding thriller, Doonby, is set to release in theaters nationwide on November 1, 2013. Written and directed by Irish filmmaker Peter Mackenzie, Doonby examines how much one man’s life can affect those around him while answering the larger questions of what one life is worth.
Starring John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard, Smallville) as Sam Doonby, alongside Will Wallace (Tree of Life, The Thin Red Line), Robert Davi (The Goonies, Die Hard), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), Jenn Gotzon (Hulk, Frost/Nixon) Doonby is produced by Riverhorse Entertainment.
“I’m really delighted about the release of Doonby in US theaters. It’s been a long haul and a labor of love for me, but I’m thrilled that I have been able to bring this to the screen with the help of some wonderful actors,” says Peter Mackenzie, Writer and Director of the film. “Doonby is a thought provoking mystery and one that I hope will stay in the minds of the viewer long after they leave the movie house.”
Doonby tells the story of Sam Doonby, a mysterious drifter who quickly becomes the talk of the small Texas town. He finds work at Leroy’s Country Blues Bar, where his musical talents make him a local celebrity, attracting the attention of the beautiful but spoiled Laura Reaper. Sam is strangely immune to the misfortunes of others, yet always around to prevent sudden disasters from happening. It’s not long before the narrow minded townsfolk become jealous and start to question his background and motives. But, it is Laura’s doubts that that cause Sam to vanish, leaving the locals to deal with some difficult admissions. Sam’s abrupt disappearance forces those he left behind to deal with some painful revelations and to question his mysterious arrival and departure.
